RETURN AND BFF LINKS

On May 7th, 2005 at the International Buddhist Temple in New Hartford, Connecticut,  our community help sponsor the first Shin & Zen Integrated Retreat in New England. 35 people participated from three different sanghas. This multi-sangha event was sponsored by the International Buddhist Temple, our BFF community and the Shin Buddhist Fellowship of West Hartford.
 
This retreat day lasted from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. with Zen meditation, Zen walking (kinhin), yoga practice, voice meditation, Zen and Shin discussions with Banya Sumin and G.R. Lewis. In addition, the Korean lunch was amazing!
 
Special thanks to G.R. Lewis (Shin speaker & retreat organizer) , Banya Sumin (Zen speaker) , Juliane Dean (voice meditation) , Gerri Landau (kripalu Style yoga) and the Korean monk and nun who prepared the delicious food.
